Is your Health Passport up to date?

Remember if you or someone you care for has a learning disability health care staff must make reasonable adjustments to the way they treat you as a patient so it it easy for you to get the care and treatment you need in hospital.   This might mean spending more time with you to help you understand what they would like to do or seeing you more quickly if waiting for a long time is difficult.

This has not changed even though hospitals might be even busier dealing with Coronavirus patients.  You can still expect staff to make reasonable adjustments for you.

You can help hospital staff to make any reasonable adjustments by remembering to take your Health Passport with you if you need to visit hospital.  But make sure the information is up to date!

Do it before you need it.
